Great value in Snowmass
Posted Aug 8, 2016
This was my second summer trip to the Crestwood. I know the rates are higher in the winter so I can't comment on winter value and ski-in / ski-out access.
For the summer I think this hotel provides great value. The rooms with the loft can sleep up to 8. (1 King bed, 1 pull-out couch, 1 Queen, and 2 twin beds). My 3 year old son loved playing upstairs in the loft area. The ceilings are low in the loft area so I would be careful if you are over 6 feet tall or have tall children and plan on sleeping upstairs.
There are 3 buildings. This year we stayed in the lower building which is the closest to the village. It is a much easier walk than last year when we were in the upper building.
For some people the lack of an elevator and steep stairs may be an issue. It might also be tough if you have a lot of heavy luggage or small kids to carry.
Parking can also be an issue on the weekend if you want to park after 5pm. There is free parking at Snowmass village and it is a short walk or free shuttle ride back to the hotel, but this can be inconvenient if you have small kids, lots of luggage or groceries to bring back to the room.
The rooms are nicely stocked with all the kitchen accessories you could ever need. We cooked about half of our meals at home with ease.
There are multiple hot tubs and a pool. The pool is not heated.
We took advantage of the on site massage room. The cost of the massage was high but you are in Aspen/Snowmass where everything is more expensive already
